is in love with his flower shop manager, Rokka, but only two things
stand in his way. One, she is a widow and still in love with her
deceased husband Shimao who died 3 years ago. And two, while Shimao
IS deceased, his ghost far from gone, only Hazuki can see and hear
him. The only reason why Shimao's ghost still hangs around Rokka is

Rendezvous: Complete Coillection
is in love with Shimao, and Shimao can be only seen by Hazuki, who
works as a part timer for Rokka, but she doesn't realize his
feelings. And while Shimao has been dead for 3 years, he doesn't
want to leave Rokka or give her up to anyone else. When Shimao was
alive he wanted her to move on and find someone new after he died,
but did a complete reversal when he became a ghost. Shimao is
dependent on Rokka, and Rokka is dependent on Shimao being dependent
on her. When Hazuki tries to help Rokka move on with her life,
Shimao tricks Hazuki to 'lend' him his body to make Rokka hate Hazuki
and even tries to make Rokka to commit suicide to join him on the
is in love with a girl, girl is in love with someone else, and girl
is oblivious to guy's feelings
the math; this is a comical romance anime. The story of 2 guys
fighting for the same girl (expect one guy is a ghost). While it is
usually consider romantic of love beyond the grave, when it is a
ghost who can't let go of the living and picks on the only guy that
can help him, it makes the ghost seems petty. In the end the main
character Hazuki could of avoid all the trouble if he told the truth
about being able to communicate with the dead, instead of letting a
ghost take advantage of him and play him. But he won't.
1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image transfers are
consistently good, if not Sentai's very best, while the DTS-HD MA
(Master Audio) lossless 2.0 Stereo mixes on each episode are very
well recorded and offer good Pro Logic-like surrounds. Extras
includes clean opening and closing animation and trailers.
